LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - An Arkansas woman once featured on a reality show about cheerleading has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for having sex with a 13-year-old boy.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1q15LHI ) that Andrea Michelle Clevenger pleaded guilty in Pulaski County Circuit Court to first-degree sexual assault and engaging a child in sexually explicit conduct. The plea agreement requires her to stay away from the boy for at least 20 years. The 34-year-old mother of three must serve two-and-a-half years before she is eligible for parole.

Clevenger acknowledged asking the boy to take explicit photos and text them to her, then having sex with him in November.

She and her daughter appeared on the TLC reality show Cheer Perfection, which chronicled the lives of girls participating in competitive cheerleading at a gym in Sherwood. The show has since been canceled, though TLC said that decision was made months before Clevenger's January arrest.
